Product Description

Hollywood legends Marlon Brando, Frank Sinatra, Jean Simmons and Vivian Blain (from the original Broadway cast) are dazzling in this Frank Loesser (How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying) masterpiece, unleashing a "spectacular, song-and-dance show that's loaded with entertainment" (New York Journal-American). Featuring hits like "Luck Be a Lady" and "A Woman in Love," this smash film version of one of Broadway's most popular musicals is guaranteed, rip-roaring "four-starentertainment" (New York Daily News). The slickest big-time New York City gamblers,Sky Masterson (Brando) and Nathan Detroit (Sinatra), can't resist making or taking a bet on anything. So when a pretty missionary (Simmons) sets up shop in the neighborhood, Nathan stakes a grand that Sky can't seduce her. But all bets are off when Sky falls madly in love in this romantic musical spectacular that sets the Big Apple afire with excitement!

Additional Features

The Deluxe Edition of Guys and Dolls has two documentaries. "The Goldwyn Touch: Guys and Dolls" (24 min.) looks at the making of the film, including how Marlon Brando played pranks on Frank Sinatra and Sinatra's belief that he himself should have been playing the Sky Masterson role. "From Stage to Screen" (27 min.) compares the movie to the original stage version, discussing how actors Vivian Blaine and Stubby Kaye and choreographer Michael Kidd worked on both. It also goes over the songs that were cut from and added to the film. Interviewees on both documentaries include Kidd, historians, and the families of the crew such as composer Frank Loesser's widow and children. There's also an additional eight minutes of interviews, a photo gallery, and a "Musical Performances" menu that lets you jump straight to six of the songs from the movie (though not "The Oldest Established," which is pictured on the menu). That's more convenient than the main scene-selection menu, which doesn't name any of the songs on the scant 12 chapters the movie is divided into. Oddly, the original DVD had a much more convenient 32 chapters, but the Deluxe Edition has the big advantage of being anamorphically enhanced for widescreen TVs, even if the transfer appears to be the same. Also noteworthy is the 72-page full-color scrapbook that exhibits vintage publicity materials, movie stills, and newspaper articles that you might be able to read if you have a magnifying glass. --David Horiuchi

Format: DVD
Yes, indeed! The booklet included is nice and glossy. Thanks! And the two documentaries added this time around are nice too. Thanks again! But what about the film itself? Has that been given the deluxe treatment as well?

Sad answer: Definitely NOT! As a matter of fact, this new "re-master" looks much worse than the previous DVD. That one was a very fuzzy non-anamorphic mess, but this new anamorphic one is just as fuzzy. In fact, when I put the old one in the zoom mode, there is no difference in focus and contrast whatsoever. And the colors are somewhat more warm and pleasant on the old edition. But worst of all, is that the new DVD is cropped on all four sides! There is quite a lot of more picture information available on the old disc, especially on top of the frame! So much for a Deluxe Edition! Shame on you, Sony/MGM-UA! Fans of this film - myself included - will have to keep the old DVD, and get this new one for the extras and the booklet. (The 2 stars above are for those inclusions alone.) This is certainly no way to treat loyal film fans and costumers willing to pay for an upgrade version of a beloved film!

Format: DVD
For those uniformed potential buyers...note that the picture/aspect ratio for this specific release has been cropped (I've done identical scene comparisons with this deluxe release and the previous edition). In addition, the (2000) release is mislabeled (i.e. 2.35:1) and is actually presented in a 2.55:1 ratio (the original theatrical release format). Conversely, the deluxe edition (is labeled 2.55:1) and because of cropping, has been altered from the picture's original aspect effect displaying a 2.35:1 image. The cropping issue has also been noted by other various reviewers, therefore confirming and/or lending credibility to this issue not being an isolated event.
In summmation...the product has been misrepresented. With this release, one does not get the complete picture...literally. I returned my deluxe edtion for a refund and will stay with my (2000) version, until the studio(s) or those responsible for a legitimate "deluxe" edtion will "do it right."

A film by Joseph Mankiewicz
The image I have in my head of Marlon Brando is that of Vito Corleone in "The Godfather" and Terry Malloy in "On the Waterfront". The opportunity to see Brando in a musical was just too good to pass up. "Guys and Dolls" is a musical about gamblers and women, but the story is much better than that.
Nathan Detroit (Frank Sinatra) runs a high stakes craps game. Normally he does not have any trouble finding a location for the game, but the police is putting on the heat and nobody is willing to take the chance...nobody but one person who wants $1000 up front to host the game. All of the big mobsters are in town and they are looking for Nathan's craps game. Nathan makes a bet with Sky Masterson (Marlon Brando), a high roller who will bet on absolutely anything. The bet is that Sky cannot convince Sarah Brown (Jean Simmons) to go with him to Havana for the night. This may not seem like that big of a bet, but Sarah Brown works downtown at the mission and is a very straight-laced, Christian woman. Sky Masterson is not the sort of man she would associate with. Sky takes the bet and starts trying to win over Sarah. While Sky is doing this, Nathan is setting up the craps game with the promise of the thousand dollars he believes he'll win from Sky. The only thing raining on Nathan's parade is his fiancee of 14 years, Miss Adelaide (Vivian Blaine). Miss Adelaide is a show girl, and she is getting tired of waiting for Nathan to marry her and she is also completely against the crap game.
The above description sets the stage for a wonderful musical where we get to see Brando singing "Luck Be a Lady". The other song that completely surprised me was "Sit Down You're Rocking the Boat", a song I only knew from the much slower Don Henley version. With Sinatra's crooning and Brando singing like I never knew he could, this is one good musical. I would definitely recommend this movie.

Format: Blu-ray Verified Purchase
I recently watched the blu ray release on a 39 inch LED TV. I then compared the blu ray version with a standard DVD labelled "Widescreen version" on a 50 inch LED. If what you want to do is "watch the movie" both versions are satisfactory. However, the blu ray has much better formating and fills more of the screen then does the standard DVD. The images are brighter on the Blu ray compared to the standard DVD and there is more detail, but I am not sure that the images of the blu ray are so much better that it is worth the extra cost particularly if you already own an earlier release. Where I found a major difference was the sound. The sound on the standard DVD release appeared monophonic, minimal frequency range and "distant". The sound on the blu ray had a wider sound stage, a greater frequency range and it was more "present". In summary if you don't own this DVD consider the blu ray, if you own an earlier release I am not sure the blu ray adds that much unless you really love this movie and watch it with relative frequency.

29 of 34 people found the following review helpful By Kathleen Donaldson on April 28, 2006
Format: DVD
"Guys and Dolls" is a fairly faithful, good adaptation of the great Broadway stage musical. Unlike "West Side Story" or "My Fair Lady", it isn't a film that cries out "SPECIAL EDITION!" but it is fine to have one available.

MGM has given the film a fine special edition (or Deluxe Edition as they call it) treatment. The box is nice and reflects some of the original artwork with modern touches. The scrapbook (A collection of old advertising and photos) is fine as well.

As for the disc itself, the two documentaries are fine. No rare photographs from the Broadway or film archives are shown, but the interviews from the children of the creators (Loesser, Goldwyn and Mankiewicz) and the choreographer, Michael Kidd are quite nice and informative.

The film itself recieves a nice treatment although it is quite similar to the previous editions.
